The Three-Day Weekend

First Friday this month, October 7, is the Memorial of Our Lady of the Rosary.  I decided to pull out a golden oldie for this one: O Queen of the Holy Rosary (tune: Ellacombe), using the text from The New St. Basil Hymnal (published by the Basilian Fathers in 1958).

That said...

Prelude, Elevations, and Postlude for all five Masses will be improvisations based on Marian themes.
